The raddest new park is just a few mins from our house! There is no play structure, it’s a nature-based play area with logs, rocks, ropes, sticks, and sand. I love how it encouraged the kids to be creative in their play! Kids were jumping from 5ft in the air, running up and down rocks, and building forts out of branches. It’s our new favorite place(although we won’t make the mistake of going on a day when there is no school again..it was packed!) ❤️ (at Westmoreland City Park)

Sometimes I am blown away by the way this little guy’s spirit roars. He is so simply himself and reminds me that my only job is to love him fully. And he makes that pretty easy to do ❤️

"One of the most satisfying experiences I know is just fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset … I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple in the cloud color” … I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds. It is this receptive, open attitude which is necessary to truly perceive something as it is."
